J. S. Bach: Harpsichord Concertos

J. S. Bach: Harpsichord Concertos

Despite its name, the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra has embraced the music of Schumann, Mendelssohn and Weber to great acclaim—and it’s arguably this flexibility and refusal to be pigeonholed that make its Baroque performances so exciting and charged with dramatic tension. This superb recording of all of Bach’s solo keyboard concertos showcases the Freiburgers at their best, with each musician alert and responsive to harpsichordist Andreas Staier’s extraordinary playing, combining driving energy with a beguiling expressiveness. Clear as ice yet shot through with gleams of expressive detail, these are performances that yield increasing rewards with every single listen.
